Revamp of An Old Favorite

Posted: 09/19/2018 in Uncategorized

Times like these are few and far between, when a project manages to come full circle and is then sent off to start another circuit.

The SG-N64 was a unique project in its own right, mostly in the sense that there was a guy dumb enough to build a portable system out of original hardware and limit it to a single game. Call it a passion project (which it was), but it still had no practicality in doing so. Still, the project found a following and even a few years after its release is still one of my more popular videos.

Now, a few weeks ago this system had been purchased by someone on eBay, and said someone somehow found my contact info which he described a new plan for the old console. The idea was to take this “Single-Game N64” system and turn into an “Every-Game N64” via the use of an Everdrive. Now granted this goes against everything this system was built for, I said yes because really it was no longer my call and it was something I hadn’t tried before.

I just found the irony perfect that with all the portables I’ve made and sent out, the first one to come back requesting this kind of mod to play “all”, was the unit designed to play only “one”!

Aside from this, the project was going to be a slight challenge because taking a scaled back system tailored to run a single game was going to take some serious tweaking to play the entire library of N64 games. But, as it turned out, the mods were fairly easy to implement and an old project got a fresh start with some pretty badass improvements!

Hopefully the buyer will be as happy with the results as I am! The video explains the fine details!
